Ricardo Roig Weekend Art Shows
Local Hoboken artist Ricardo Roig “double feature”
“One Artist. One Weekend. Two Galleries. Two Art Shows!”
We’ve known Ricardo Roig for a while – and it’s such a great pleasure to see his art evolve and become refined as time progresses. This is a future superstar in the art world in our opinion – and you should probably get in while you can!
Ricardo has some upcoming shows this weekend and says “Thank you for your continuing support of my creative efforts. Your belief in my abilities fuels my confidence to challenge myself as a fine artist and grow my craft. This would be a great weekend to take the opportunity and see what I’ve been up to with all of your encouragement. Hope to see you soon.”

Lana Santorelli Gallery – 628 Washington Street
6-9PM March 24, This Saturday
Ricardo sold out of all five works on display in his debut with Lana Santorelli Gallery last November in their small works exhibition. Returning this Saturday in a group show displaying his hand-cut paper-stencil screen print, “Silver Birch Trees”, Ricardo hopes to give his local community new and innovative inspiration.
Partnering with Tresorie Custom Framing, 1204 Washington Street, Ricardo has created the ultimate statement of his works. His screen prints will be sold framed and protected with the masterful skills of professional framer, Heba Elbanna, who also is now featuring Ricardo’s work in her Hoboken shop. This local teamwork between Ricardo, Heba, and Art Galleries is sure to continue to produce results and allow Ricardo to elevate the overall value of his artwork. Come show your support this Saturday and see the unveiling of this new partnership and remarkable presentation.
There are 8 screen prints available for purchase from an edition of 11. The first to buy this print was a Gallery Supervisor at Christie’s Auction House that contacted Ricardo directly.
Barsky Gallery – Sunday March 25th – 4pm to 8pm

Barsky Gallery Opening Celebration! 49 Harrison Street
4-8PM March 25, This Sunday
The entire oeuvre of Ricardo’s screen prints are exhibited by Barsky Gallery. Being a professionally represented fine artist allows Ricardo to push himself harder to master his craft as his work hangs with many phenomenal, internationally recognized artists. Having the ability to complete new works, add them to the growing collection, and allow the public to view them in this eclectic venue motivates Ricardo to always give art lovers something new to see.
Al Barsky, owner and art dealer, has an extremely sophisticated eye for art and his friendship with Ricardo has prompted many new evocative artworks which will be unveiled this Sunday at the Grand Opening Celebration! Al’s encouragement and support for Ricardo’s work has even raised money for their local community in a recent fundraiser for recent fire victims displaced from their Hoboken apartment at 300 Washington. Prints from this edition are available through Barsky Gallery, where a percentage of the proceeds are donated to these less fortunate neighbors. These works are also professionally custom framed by Tresorie, allowing a consistency of presentation for Ricardo’s new work.
A few of the screen prints on display are the last available for purchase from their respective editions. “Flamenco Dancer”, “Sleeping Dancer” and “Times Square, New Year’s Eve” have been the most sought after limited edition screen prints and purchasing them will sell out their editions, allowing them to inherently become collector’s items. The evolution of Ricardo’s new screen printing technique is also apparent in this collection, allowing the buyer to create their own assortment of complimentary sensations. The first five prints are sold at a premium and as the edition sells out, the remaining prints become more valuable.
